This paper describes an architecture for performing anaphora resolution in a flexible way. Systems which conform to these guidelines are wellencapsulated and portable, and can be used to compare anaphora resolution techniques for new language understanding applications. Our implementation of the architecture in a pronoun resolution testing platform demonstrates the flexibility of the approach.
The first all-inclusive guidebook for designing, building, and implementing a sturdy core valuation/projection model
In today’s no-room-for-error corporate finance market, precise and effective financial modeling is essential for both determining a company’s current value and projecting its future performance. Yet few books have explained how to build models that accurately interpret a company’s financial statement, while none have focused on projection models.
We present an implemented XML data model and a new, simpliﬁed query language for multi-level annotated corpora. The new query language involves automatic conversion of queries into the underlying, more complicated MMAXQL query language. It supports queries for sequential and hierarchical, but also associative (e.g. coreferential) relations. The simpliﬁed query language has been designed with non-expert users in mind.
This paper describes the NECA MNLG; a fully implemented Multimodal Natural Language Generation module. The MNLG is deployed as part of the NECA system which generates dialogues between animated agents. The generation module supports the seamless integration of full grammar rules, templates and canned text. The generator takes input which allows for the specification of syntactic, semantic and pragmatic constraints on the output.
Planning and Organizing a Database
Planning for your database is the first step in organizing and implementing a database system. First define how the database will be used. This determines what type of database you need to create that will meet the needs of your business, for example, data warehousing, high online transaction processing, or general purpose. After you determine the purpose and type, you must outline the database architecture that will be used.
C++ is a flexible, powerful programming language with hundreds of
thousands of applications. However, the knowledge of how to take
advantage of its full potential comes only with time and experience.
That’s where this book comes in. Think of it as a “cookbook” for solving
your programming problems, much as The Joy of Cooking is a guide to
solving your dinner dilemmas.
Because of this projects often stay at the pre-implementation stage; of course,
this may be because the initial idea wasn’t a good one in the first place, or that
it has proved not to be feasible. Finding out that a proposal is impracticable or
unworkable is actually a useful result of a project as it eliminates mistakes
which could prove costly if implemented without experimentation. On the other
hand it’s very wasteful to lose successful innovations through unsuccessful
Nonconcatenative constraints, such as the shuffle relation, are frequently employed in grammatical analyses of languages that have more flexible ordering of constituents than English. We show how it is possible to avoid searching the large space of permutations that results from a nondeterministic application of shuffle constraints. The results of our implementation demonstrate that deterministic application of shuffle constraints yields a dramatic improvement in the overall performance of a head-corner parser for German using an HPSG-style grammar.
The NI test engineering team has developed and implemented a common test software and hardware
platform that can be scaled across multiple product lines. The strategy was to create and maintain a
standard test development software environment with flexible capabilities that engineers can use to
focus on developing tests rather than reinventing their own, unique test frameworks.
In this paper we present the RWTH FSA toolkit – an efﬁcient implementation of algorithms for creating and manipulating weighted ﬁnite-state automata. The toolkit has been designed using the principle of on-demand computation and offers a large range of widely used algorithms. To prove the superior efﬁciency of the toolkit, we compare the implementation to that of other publically available toolkits. We also show that on-demand computations help to reduce memory requirements signiﬁcantly without any loss in speed. ...
When people use natural language in natural settings, they often use it ungrammatically, rnisSing out or repeating words, breaking-oil and restarting, speaking in Iragments, etc.. Their human listeners are usually able to cope with these deviations with little difficulty. If a computer system wislles tc accept natural language input from its users on a routine basis, it must display a similar indifference. In this paper, we outline a set of parsing flexibiiilies that :',uch a system should provide. We go, on to describe FlexP.
If we want to avoid the use of a full male grammar, the syntactic processes necessary to support the semantic module must be implemented by special dedicated procedures. This paper describe the .solutions used in a semantic analyser of French called SABA, developed at the Computer Sciences department of University of Liege, Belgium.
As a professional sales trainer, I have discovered a very important aspect of adult learning: people love simplicity. The
simpler the better. I wrote this book with that goal in mind; to reveal the simplicity of selling. Selling is simple. Simple is
fun. That is why the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Salespeople) prevails. This book offers an approach that strips away
the perceived complexities of selling and discusses selling in its purest form: a dialogue between two human beings.
The required skills of an effective sales professional have become increasingly sophisticated.
In Vietnam, after the conversion from the command economy to market economy, the local enterprises faced many difficulties in strategic management. Businesses need to research, develop a strategic tool to have enough flexibility to respond to market changes. A business strategy must be formulated on the basis of analysis and forecast opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses of the enterprise, helping businesses obtain general information about the external and internal business environment.
Viettel Group is one successful model of change to the market economy.

Development of packet-switched data communication networking
technologies has been rapid in recent years, a phenomenon made
possible by the open standardization process and the potential
new territories for intellectual property creation. As a consequence,
new ways of creating services have been devised, bringing more
flexibility as compared to traditional telecommunications schemes.
Presents a novel design that allows for a great deal of customization, which many current methods fail to include; Details a flexible, comprehensive design that can be easily extended when necessary; Proven results: the versatility of the design has been effectively tested in implementations ranging from microcontrollers to supercomputers
This document provides system-level best practices and design guidance for the Cisco Internet Protocol
Contact Center (IPCC) Express Edition Release 4.5(x). With proper planning, design, and
implementation, Cisco IPCC Express provides a reliable and flexible voice processing and contact
center solution for the enterprise.
SmartReporter implements a Consolidation Policy, which goes over your original, "raw" log file. It compresses similar logs into events and writes the compressed list of events into a relational database (the SmartReporter Database). This database enables quick and efficient generation of a wide range of reports. The SmartReporter solution provides a balance between keeping the smallest report database possible and retaining the most vital information with the most flexibility.
Alongside cohesion policy, the Connecting Europe Facility5 will be one of the EU's most
obvious contributions to cutting through these obstacles by stimulating infrastructure. 2013
should see the facility up and running and key choices made on targeting. It should also see
project bonds being rolled out to help harness private sector investment.
This will go hand in hand with consolidating regulation.
